Our biggest hit trick is back...with a special Christmas Edition!

This version of "Socks" is ideal for the holidays, and "Socks" turns out to be a PERFECT effect for virtual shows. With the holidays just around the corner, you should consider adding this trick--and this festive pair of holiday socks--to your order.

In case you've been under a rock for the last year, here's what happens in Michel Huot's sensational "Socks" effect: you show two packets of cards with a picture of a different sock design on each one (that's right--SOCKS on cards--how cool is that?). The goal, you explain, is that despite random shuffling and a spectator's free choice to stop you as you deal through both packets, they will SOMEHOW select the same, matching socks in each packet. But it goes WRONG. They choose two mismatched socks. But, to make things right, you reveal that you are WEARING THE CHOSEN, MISMATCHED SOCKS.

"Socks" has it all: intrigue, a great premise, an unexpected surprise, and humor. It works just as well through the screen as it does live, and now we have a Christmas edition PERFECT for the holidays.

The effect is the same, but this time you predict a pair of HOLIDAY socks. Each of the cards has a different holiday sock design, which makes the trick topical for the holidays. As per the original, the chosen socks don't match, but you reveal you're wearing each one of the mismatched holiday socks on your feet. Our holiday designs are over-the-top kitsch and will add to the hilarity of the moment when you lift up your trouser cuffs to show these clashing holiday prints.

We've reflected on what makes "Socks" so powerful, and why this Christmas edition is so strong. We believe it's because "Socks" taps into a core curiosity of our everyday lives: choosing socks, occasionally wearing mismatched socks, and the rarity of finding a perfect match. We also love that the reveal is genuinely a surprise that nobody seems coming, but in retrospect feels inevitable. And, whenever a revelation can be visual rather than simply written out, it's stronger. "Socks: Christmas Edition" is the perfect addition to your holiday zoom show, and the most surprising trick you can perform for friends and family at this year's gathering.

Includes: Specially made socks, cards and wallet, and video instruction

"Socks is a fun, interactive routine with a killer surprise ending they won’t forget!" Richard Sanders

Michel Huot’s Socks Knocked mine right off my feet! So clever and simple with a fun and organically visual payoff, this piece will play just as strongly in a corporate strolling environment as it will in a casual private party. Michel’s performance and explanation made me smile from start to finish. Just great! Francis Menotti

Socks knocks my Sox off. It’s funny, mysterious, and not at all difficult. I will use it, so will you. Marc Salem

Socks is unique and super strong. It is so rare to have something that combines magic, comedy and surprise in such a powerful way for the close-up/parlor performer. This is going right into my repertoire! Marc Desouza

  • Kev asks: Are the cards examinable?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes.
  • STEPHEN asks: is this self-working? Can it be done with no secret moves, wearing white cotton gloves? (I'm a local Santa Claus.)

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: As taught, it requires some timing, and a hint of psychology. But no sleights, so your gloved hands should have zero problems if you can deal cards in them.
  • Gene asks: The big problem of the orginal Socks was the size. One size fits all. Well I couldn't use them because I couldn't get them on my feet. The socks didn't stretch to well and. Did this problem get worked out for the Christmas edition?

  • Vernon asks: I am a dwarf and wear small cloths. Are the socks one size fits all?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: They are, but they might be a lit large for you.
  • Nate asks: Is there an option to buy one of the other “pairs” of socks? I’d like to have a little variety, without having to repurchase the whole effect.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Your wish is our command: https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic-accessories/socks-replacement/
  • Michael asks: Is there any discount on the Holiday Socks for those of us who purchased the original Socks?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Unfortunately not. The product includes newly printed socks and cards.
  • Travis asks: Is there a stage handling for this?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The handling it comes with works for stage, you just have to hold the cards up a little more.

Got this last year and it's fun to do when you have a small crowd. The matching socks comes as a shock to people. By the way..you can have fun doing the" pateo force" with one special sock card and 13 others.
